Lately the skin around my fingernails has been peeling away. My hands aren't actually dry, and applying skin lotion doesn't help (but it doesn't make it worse, either); there's no pain and no itching, but the skin is peeling off rather drastically, and it looks terrible -- it's happening on every single finger! This has never happened to me before; I'm generally very healthy and my diet is very good. I'm not sure if it's worth seeing a doctor about, since otherwise I feel fine.
As a note, I do have a B12 deficiency, but I take supplements for it (it's not severe enough to require injections), and I couldn't see anything that would suggest "peeling skin on hands" is one of the symptoms of it getting worse.
